Hello all HPDE 4 drivers! Welcome back and welcome to all new drivers! We had a great year developing skills and race craft. Really looking forward to furthering everyone's developments for this season.

Some new changes for 2015. We will have a new HPDE 3 leader as a separate group.

Jon Cindric will be you coach and mentor for our group! So more can get one-on-one coaching! Jon brings many years of experience in a variety of cars with many wins along the way. He will be a great asset for us!

With that, what are items you all want to work on this year?

Glad to see you'll be the Group 4 Leader again Mike. Going to run a reduced schedule this year, so I decided to hold off on going TT till later.

Bet you can't wait to test it out at NCM. Love watching the Porsche's run.

Ditto, glad to see you'll be coaching us in HPDE 4 again.

I'm all signed up for all the Great Lakes events starting with the June event except for the Championships!

Randy, got something for you when we next meet.

Had some more IRS modification work done & found a loose upper bushing mount right rear damper. So the car is back in with the builder. It's an expensive way to store the car for the winter. I gotta get better doing "complete" inspections after each event.

Going to work for some faster exit speeds this year in order to get to a point to compete in TT3.

Was ready to move into TT3 this year, but we've decided to move a little closer to work, 80 mile one-way commute is wearing on me, so we're going to cut back on events this year and maybe next to save money and get house ready to sell. Once we move I'll make the move into TT3. See you at MO or NCM?

Thanks Roy!

Great to hear!

We can (and will be) working on that subject and many more this summer.

To get faster out, you have to be faster in. 8) We'll be covering backwards design/thinking of corners as one of the topics.
